Life has taken on a very progressive and fast pace – but the bad side is, it is at the expense of the only planet we have. There are a lot of environmental groups, and we even celebrate Earth Day, but we cannot deny the fact that everyday of our lives, we worsen the condition of our environment.
To stop pollution, here are some easy, but effective options:
- Manage your garbage. Segregate and put litter only into their respective bins. There are still some people who put trash in bodies of water, or sewer systems, or just about everywhere. Clean up your act! Putting litter in its proper place is hygienic, it keeps your place clean and clean-smelling, and it is your responsibility to the community and the world.
- Recycle. Not recycling has been a ‘habit’ – and a bad habit at that. Always be conscious of what you throw away. Think about its other uses before you forever add another pound of trash to the world. Do not be scared, it is not that hard. You might have just got accustomed to not recycling, that’s why it might look complicated at first, but it isn’t.
- Report illegal dumping. You may have noticed a production plant disposing chemicals or garbage near your river or lake—report them. These companies have to be responsible about waste management, and as long as no one is reporting, they will be damaging our environment right under our noses.
